Illinois, United States | website

Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Top Fuel is a barrel aged American style Barley Wine brewed by Local Option Bierwerker. This super charged beer surges forward at 330 MPH; appearing hazy light copper with immediate notes of toffee, caramel, pine and earthy undertones. Full bodied with a velvety mouth feel, and lingering bitterness, Top Fuel is aged on Four Roses bourbon barrels, yielding a devastating barley wine worthy of its name. No adjuncts or extracts of any type are used in Top Fuel.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks, Dave, for throwing this in as an extra!

A: dark, rusty brown

S: really intense: earthy citrus; toffee, vanilla, and oak; burnt brown sugar; spicy cola notes?

T: lots of toffee and brown sugar upfront; light barrel character: oaky vanilla butterscotch; strong hoppy notes; powerful but non-cloying sweetness; strong alcohol presence; could not get enough of this

M: thick, chewy, and sticky

O: fantastic integration of hop notes and barrel character
